OFS announced an expansion of its microcable product line with the introduction of its RollR200 Central Core (CC) Rollable Ribbon Microcable at ISE EXPO 2021. The RollR200 CC Rollable Ribbon Microcable features 432 optical fibers in a gel-free central core design optimized for microduct installations. This latest-generation cabling solution can help take metro networks to the next level with increased fiber density, enhanced performance, and speed of deployment.Read the full article at: http://www.cablinginstall.com
Viavi Solutions’ ONT 800G FLEX XPM module now supports QSFP-DD800 testing, accelerating the production of 800G network infrastructure. It is the first lab validation system to offer support for both OSFP800 and QSFP-DD800 modules, enhancing the industry’
AFL has unveiled its OFI-BIPMe, an optical fiber identifier technicians can use to determine if a fiber is live, the transmission direction, and the relative core power.
The OFI-BIPMe is a cousin to the previously introduced OFI-BIPM. It offers a lower price point for applications that do not require advanced PON functions such as the capability to detect ONTs.
Pearson Technologies recently updated three Fiber-To-The-Home/Passive Optical Network (FTTH/PON) hands-on training programs. One is an installation program, another a design program, and the third is a combination of design and installation. “Since the principles for design and installation of both FTTH/PON and optical LANs are similar, these programs develop the knowledge, skills and abilities (SKAs) for both,” Pearson Technologies said when announcing the updates.
At the 2021 BICSI Fall Conference (Aug. 22 – 26) in Las Vegas, Legrand unveiled its latest fiber technology advancement, the Infinium acclAIM Fiber Solution platform.
As part of Legrand’s larger fiber offering, the company contends the Infinium accIAIM Fiber interconnect platform “redefines fiber connectivity by replacing pre-terminated cassette-based solutions with direct connections, to deliver the lowest insertion loss available on the market.”
The fiber and cable manufacturers’ plant in Claremont, North Carolina, will see the most attention in a new $85 million upgrade cycle, which will result in increased production capacity.
It’s all about location when it comes to edge computing. Modern businesses rely on data to provide significant business insight and real-time management over essential business operations and processes. Large volumes of data may be routinely acquired from sensors and IoT devices running in real-time from remote places and hostile working environments virtually anywhere in the globe, and today’s organizations are drowned in a sea of information.
The technology of edge computing is growing because it helps companies get information in the fastest way. 75% of data produced by an enterprise can be created and processed outside of a traditional centralized data center or cloud, only it is required to move the data and storage as close as possible to the edge of the computing where the data is actually being processed. Edge computing technology is used in manufacturing, farming, workplace safety, network optimization, transportation, retail as well as improved healthcare services.
New hybrid cables are enabling fiber to reach deeper into the network, providing additional infrastructure choice for connecting devices that require high bandwidth, power and distance.
Edge computing raises new security concerns. When endpoints multiply, the threat landscape expands accordingly. Security teams need to be in communication with operations and networking teams in order to be able to make edge-based computing work securely. Many times, edge-based compute gets deployed, but the security implications are overlooked. Read the full article at: http://www.csoonline.com
